MAKE A WISH 3
54 WORDS

  1. One hundred and twenty one pages farther on in the 1958 (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) from the (_ _ _ _ _) two-train set, catalog (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) found the other seven pages of (_ _ _) (_ _ _ _ _ _).
  2. The Nos. 51, 53, 52 A-B-A F-unit “(_ _ _ _ _ _) Diesel” set pulled seven cars as (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) set No. 79N09638.  For the same price, $29.79 cash or $3 (_ _ _ _), you could have set No. 79N09632, “Our Best Allstate 6-Unit (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) Train” with 901 & 902 (_ _ _ _ _) & yellow (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) Pacific A-B-A diesels pulling two (_ _ _ _ _)-Dome coaches and an observation.
  3. $29.79 could also get you Lionel set No. 79N09656, the “(_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) 8-Unit Twin Diesel” freight.  Led by No. 210 M.K.T. (_ _ _ _ _) (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) Alco FA’s, six cars including the new No. 6802 flat car with (_ . _ . _ _ _ _ _) girders and the No. 6801 flatcar with (_ _ _ _) along side a gondola with (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) could keep kids busy for hours.
  4. “New!” also in 1958 was the (_ _ _ _ _ _) Ship (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) Set “Imported from (_ _ _ _ _)”.  Supported by (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _), the Rocket (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) looked a bit retro (think Flash Gordon) compared with the trains Alweg was building at (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) in 1958.
  5. 1959 was a great year.  Firstly, it brought an Allstate set that mimicked the A.F. special set from 1958.  The No. 79N09637 “(_ _ _ - _ _ _ _ _) Trestle Set” replaced (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ ‘ _) Styrofoam mountain with a “railroad (_ _ _ _ _ _)”, which was identified as a “plastic (_ _ _ _ _ _ _)” in 1960’s catalog.
  6. Below it, “From the days of early (_ _ _ _ _ _ _)”, was set No. 79N09622, “An Old-Style (_ _ _ _ - _ _ _ _ _ _).”  Priced at $18.77, or 10% down if you spent $20 or more using Sears “Easy (_ _ _ _ _)”, Marx’ No. 1 4-4-0 (_ . _ . _ _ _ _ _ _) loco pulled two tin (_ _ . _ _ _ _) & Pacific cars.
  7. A great set to be sure, but maybe a competitor for the No. 79N09666 in spirit only.  Described as “(_ _ _ _ _), red and gold-color”, this version of the Lionel O27 1862 (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) pulled the Nos. 1866 (_ _ _ _)-baggage, 1865 coach and the exclusive 1887 flatcar with (_ _ _ _ _ _).
  8. An unpainted (_ _ _ _ _) plastic car, the 1887 also boasted (_ _ _ _ _) rods, (_ _ _ _ - _ _ _) trucks and (_ _ _ _ _ _) fences.  It’s 2 white, 2 black and 2 tan & brown steeds weren’t the only (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) pieces in this special outfit.
  9. The 963 (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) Set with 18 pieces (Lionel counted all parts of a structure as one piece no matter how many individual component pieces were in the kit) included a Log (_ _ _ _ _), water (_ _ _ _), windmill, fence sections and (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) to add play value to this great set.
  10. On the opposite page and at the opposite end of the spectrum was a (_ _ _ _ _ - _) set, the first offered by Sears, that epitomized the “(_ _ _ _ _ _) Age”.
  11. “Packed with (_ _ _ _ _ _ _)” and pulled by the No. 44 U.S. Army “combination diesel engine-mobile missile launcher” that fired four “little (_ _ _ _)” projectiles, set No. 79N09682K included five cars plus the No. 175 Rocket (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _).
  12. These were the 2 sets buy in 1959.  With rocket and bomb tests in the news and westerns in prime-time, no (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) toy season was a “Up-to-the-(_ _ _ _ _ _)” as this one was.  Plus with the “Atomic Super “O” Set”, you got the No. 6807 flatcar with (_ _ _ _), (“duck” in the Sears catalog) and the No. 6814 (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) car.
